Ham Salad

Southern Ham Salad

The South is famous for smoked ham. It’s fried for breakfast, sliced for sandwiches and popular in this party favourite. It’s called a salad, but is really more of a dip or spread, perfect for serving alongside its retro cousins, pimento cheese spread and devilled eggs, for an impressive start to a big family gathering like Thanksgiving. It’s a great way to use up leftover Christmas ham and you can turn it into a salad by piling it on top pf a bed of mixed green leaves. Leftovers keep for 4–5 days refrigerated.

Makes about 1½ cups

Ingredients
  • ½ cup whole-egg mayonnaise
  • 3 green onions, very finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon very finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt flakes, crushed
  • Good pinch ground cayenne pepper, more or less to taste
  • Several grinds black pepper
  • 200g smoked leg ham, chopped
  • Crackers and/or celery heart, for serving
Method
  1. Place mayonnaise, green onion, parsley, mustard, cayenne and pepper in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Stir through the ham, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Serve with crackers and/or stalks of tender celery heart.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are Ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.
